Since I wrote my last review (I have a child with an IEP that the administration tried labeling ADD) things seem to be improving at LRES. I have had the pleasure of having one of my children in 2 of their new teachers classes. Both of the new teachers were FANTASTIC and really cared for thier students. They are a great addition to LRES. If the principle continues to bring in such wonderful people to his school we will have a truly wonderful place. As for the adminstrator that wanted to label my child ADD, she has since moved on and the her replacement is also a step in the right direction. There are still a few teachers there that would probably be better off retiring because they seem to choose favorites in a classroom and/or let children know when they don't like them and have been labeled "yellers." Still room for improvement but has taken great strides in the right direction in the past couple of years.

Great teachers who really care. Great principal and office staff who really care. Everyone seems to cheer each other on. They take the Anti-Bullying program seriously too. They seem to get that motivation comes from positive reinforcement. The students are not just numbers at Lamprey Elementary School.

My son had an IEP and they had a difficult time handling my son. H was there for two years and out of those 2 years they were only able to keep him for full days for 2 months out of that time. I actually moved to another town because of this. They were quick to blame ma as the full time working single mother of three... I also dont believe that every child needs to be medicated because they are difficult to handle.

The staff work so hard, but their hands are tied due to budget issues. Our school could really put this money to good use!

My two children attend LRES. Not all teachers 'fit' all children, but we have been blessed with our teachers. They have always been, understanding, structured, patient, and my children's education has surpassed what I would have expected. The curriculum much more advanced than what I grew up with, and I think it's great! You cannot expect the school system to be the only one responsible in your children's education, every parent neeeds to be involved, every day. I have seen some kids come out of this school and go on to good colleges, and have seen some kids leave the school and idle. I believe the difference was parent involvement.

My daughter is in Ms. Ingalls' first grade classroom. Ms. ingalls does whatever it takes to get the children to learn. This can be from cooking or using food to one on one with the child. The children in her class love to make her proud. I was impressed by the only rule in her class is that WE ARE FAMILY. My daughter reads well and I believe that is because of her caring teacher. She is never to busy to talk with a parent even on the weekends. We need more teachers like this in our community. The classroom is bright and inviting. We love Ms. Ingalls she is our family.

Great school. The teachers and staff at the school are enthusiastic. I have a daughter in the 2nd grade. The amount of homework is just right and I like the curriculum, especially math and science. Great job Lamprey Elementary! Keep up the great work.

I have a 4yr old in his 2nd yr of preschool and a 1st grader. My 1st grader has an IEP, and I am pleased with progress made. Both of my children have great teachers who truly care about their students. Ms. Walsh-1st grade is amazing and we feel truly blessed to have her as our daughter's teacher. As far as the school goes; many improvements have been made in the last few yrs. In my opinion-every effort is being made to ensure that our children receive the best possible learning experience in a safe environment. We as parents do need to take an active role in the development of our children-it can not rely solely in the hands of our schools. Those shoes are simply too big to fill. RC

My children have ieps.I must say I was having doubts about sending my children to the elem school.I had heard so many bad things about the school.They have been going for four to five years and are improving every day.More volenteers are needed.I am also worried about the cuts for next year. Does that mean we loose a teacher & more crowed classrooms.That does scare me.The children will suffer.

I feel that everyone at the Lamphrey River Elementary school, has the children's best interest at heart.

The only complaint I have about LRES is the open concept structure. It's very difficult for children, especially at that age, to concentrate on what is being taught when they can be so easily distracted by another class. Otherwise, staff appears to truly care about the kids and I have had several teachers (I have 3 kids in the school) go the extra mile for my children. Parent involvement is highly encouraged by the teachers and administration.

My daughter attends Ms. Ann's Preschool in this school and I am happy about it. Ms. Ann is there for the children her aide on the other hand should not be there. The school needs to get a younger aide. Ms. Ann has taught my child so much increbile stuff. I hate to have her go to the four-year old room. My son was there two years ago and I wish he had Ms. Ann. She is a great teacher and truly loves the children. She goes to birthday parties and calls the children at home just to say Hi!.

Poor school quality overall. Staff focuses on discipline more than academics. Parents too affraid to speak their minds. Alot of yelling each time I have visited. I am affraid for our children if staff does not improve.

My son is in first grade at this school with disabilities. It was very hard to get an IEP set up for him and for the teachers to follow the IEP is something else. I have had continous meetings to have my son tested for a learning disability with very little results. The school is open concept so it is very noisey and hard for children to concentrate and learn. The school is known to push children on to a higher grade even if they are not ready. This is the fight that I am haveing now. This year has been a continous fight with the IEP team and principales to get any help at all for my son. I do not recommend this school to any one. If you want your child to have a good educatiuon DO NOT go to any of the Raymond schools.
